Bears RB KaDeem Carey excelled in pass protection Monday. He stood up linebacker Jon Bostic when Bostic blitzed between the center and guard. He stayed square and obstructed Bostic long enough for the pass to be thrown. Later, he picked up linebacker Christian Jones on a stunt inside, demonstrating enough awareness not to be fooled. It was a promising showing in an area in which coach Marc Trestman demands his backup running backs to be reliable.
Carey is competing for snaps behind Matt Forte. If he can continue to show well in pass pro, he'll likely win the job and be Forte's primary handcuff.
